Frock On: Indigenous Australian Textiles and Fashion

Friday, October 7, 2022
5:30 pm | Campbell Hall 160

In this explorative Friday afternoon lecture, anthropologist and fashionista Louise Hamby will discuss the movement of Indigenous Australian textiles and fashion that has emerged over the past ten years. From textiles that are designed and hand-printed in Aboriginal communities inspired by country and culture, to super chic runway shows at Australian Fashion Week and exhibitions in Los Angeles and beyond, this talk will explore how artists from some of the most remote locations on the planet are improving upon what couture can mean and what it can look like.
